AAP MP seeks President's intervention

| | New Delhi

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said an "emergency-like" situation prevailed in the national Capital and has sought President Ram Nath Kovind's intervention.

Singh's remark Singh came after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues staged a sit- at the office of the Lt Governor to press for their various demands.

Singh said he has asked for an appointment with Kovind along with party lawmakers and legislators from Delhi and Punjab.

"It's an Emergency-like situation in Delhi. The entire work of the Delhi government is crippled due to strike by IAS officers for past four months," said Singh, adding that the Lt Governor was working at the "behest" of the Modi Government.

The AAP Government's demands to the L-G include direction to IAS officers to end their "strike", action against those who have struck work for "four months". It has also asked the L-G to approve the proposal for doorstep delivery of rations.

"It's unfortunate that the Delhi Chief Minister, his deputy and two Ministers are sitting at the L-G office, but he has not found even three minutes to meet them in past three days," said Singh.

He said that he has talked to the leaders of various political parties like Samajwadi Party (SP), RJD, JD(S), CPM, CPI and RLD who have assured support to the AAP.

"The L-G and the Centre should try to find out a solution to the problem and the president should intervene," said the Rajya Sabha MP.

Singh said that if the IAS officers assured in writing to end their strike and resume work, the AAP will appeal the chief minister and his colleagues to end their sit-in at the L-G office. He warned that the AAP will resort to a massive agitation if no solution is found to the existing situation.
